National & Atwood

I have a 2004 Seabreeze LX. I was having trouble with my atwood water heater. I took the board to have it checked out to see if it was bad. The guy asked me if it was working on electric. I told him it was not a electric unit just lp. He told me that the board was a electric & lp combination. After investigating it I found out it was hooked up to 110 and it was hooked up to the water heater board. Inside the rv their is a space for a electric switch and the wire is coming to the wire harness but a wire is not not coming out. I don't understand why National bought a combination water heater and did not finish hooking it up. All it would have been was a small piece of wire and a switch. I did end up replacing my water heater and I do have it working on lp and electric.

Probably used the same wiring harness for several models, just like cars.
My only switch was the breaker until I installed a switch.
Most RV batteries live a long and useful life, some are murdered.

I bought the rv in 2007. You would think that the seabreeze lx would be high enough on the ladder to jusified adding a wire and switch.

Electric/Propane water heater

That's strange that it wasn't hooked up. When I got my Islander the switch to the water heater was inside a cabinet, if you turned in on and closed the door you would forget about it. So I mounted a switch in plain view and it has a pilot light when on. When hooked up to a electric included rv park I leave it on.

Your 04 Seabreeze LX was listed as having 10 GAL gas and electric water heater from the factory. Sounds like it was a error on the manufactureing line.
